Whatever your mood, there’s a walk for you – whether you’re after a relaxing wander through our parks and gardens or keen for a more challenging hike around the coast. They offer unbeatable views, and most are only minutes from the city centre.

Wild Wellington

Our city has been shaped by earthquakes, the greywacke hills worn down by wind, and the valleys carved by water. Extreme weather has created a rugged but resilient coastline.

Our native forests support a thriving ecosystem of birds, lizards and insects. To see the best examples of remnant podocarp/kohekohe-tawa forest in Wellington, visit Khandallah Park and Otari-Wilton’s Bush, New Zealand’s only native botanic garden.
